Zeno of Elea (/ˈzn ...ˈɛliə/; Greek: Ζήνων ὁ Ἐλεᾱ́της; c. 495 – c. 430 BC)[1] was a pre-Socratic Greek philosopher of Magna Graecia and a member of the Eleatic School founded by Parmenides. Aristotle called him the inventor of the dialectic.[2] He is best known for his paradoxes, which Bertrand Russell described as "immeasurably subtle and profound".[3]
